Letter from Linus Pauling to Karl Landsteiner. May 25, 1936.
Pauling expresses interest in the antibodies work described by Landsteiner and discusses the possibility of Landsteiner coming to Pasadena for a visit.


May 25, 1936

Dr. Karl Landsteiner

Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research

New York City

Dear Dr. Landsteiner:

I was very much interested in the problems connected with antibodies which you described to me and also in the possibility that you mention or your coming to Pasadena for a visit. We would be very glad indeed if you were to find it possible to visit us here for awhile. Although some work is done here during the summer, many people are away at that time, and I think that it would be most satisfactory if you were to some when the Institute is in session, between September and June.

My wife joins me in sending you regards and a cordial invitation.

Sincerely yours,

Linus Pauling
